I don't currently have an FC5 box to test with. Here's what to try: move 
the ppport.h aside, and in the plperl directory run this command to 
generate a replacement:

  perl -MDevel::PPPort -e 'Devel::PPPort::WriteFile();'

and then recompile.

The last substantial change to ppport.h was when I mangled the old one a 
bit to get it to work with perl 5.05 - which we no longer support (see 
recent discussion). It does have some fairly horrible stuff (e.g. 
function bodies).

cheers
